Research-Grade 2.8 Megapixel CCD USB 3.0 Camera Cooled performance from an uncooled camera. Ideal for scientific image analysis in low light life science, clinical and material science applications.


Lumenera’s INFINITY3-3UR is a high-speed, high sensitivity research-grade camera with a 2.8 megapixel resolution. The INFINITY3-3UR incorporates Sony’s remarkable ICX674 CCD sensor, unleashing the high frame rate capability via a high-speed USB 3.0 data interface. Full resolution images are sent to a host computer at up to 53 frames per second (fps). The research-grade designation of the INFINITY3-3UR is a testament to the low noise electronics, high-grade components and unique thermal management techniques. The result is an industry-leading, highperformance, low noise digital camera, alone in its class. This microscopy camera is designed for use in a wide variety of scientific, life science, clinical and industrial applications requiring optimal color reproduction, extreme sensitivity, increased resolution and high speed.

Superior Sensitivity and Color Reproduction

The INFINITY3-3UR has the unmatched light sensitivity needed for low light applications. Relying on Sony’s EXview HAD II technology, this camera offers extremely high dynamic range, 4.54 x 4.54 µm pixels and very low noise. The INFINITY3-3UR delivers outstanding image quality and value for challenging low light applications such as fluorescence and NIR imaging.

USB 3.0 High-Speed Plug-and-Play Interface

The INFINITY3-3UR uses the latest USB 3.0 technology at 5 Gbits/sec to deliver the fastest image transfer - even at its highest resolution. Image captures can be synchronized using either a hardware or software trigger. 128 MB of onboard memory for frame buffering ensures dependable and reliable image delivery at full frame rate and highest resolution even in the most demanding systems. USB 3.0 is the ideal choice for microscopy as it is readily available on today’s computers, while plug-and-play connectivity makes for installation easy. Simplified I/O cabling is provided through a locking Hirose connector supporting 1 optically isolated output, 1 optically isolated input and 2 configurable I/O ports.

Features • Industry leading Sony EXview HAD II sensor technology • Color or monochrome ICX674 CCD sensor with 2/3” optical format providing a resolution of 1936 x 1456 using 4.54 x 4.54 μm pixels • Fastest frame rates possible for the ICX674 sensor. Up to 53 fps at full resolution, 66 fps (1920 x 1088), 109 fps at VGA (640 x 480) • High-speed USB 3.0 interface for fastest image delivery and simplified connectivity. USB 2.0 supported. • GPI/O for control of peripherals and synchronization • Region of Interest (ROI) option to provide higher frame rates • Selectable 8 or 14-bit pixel data • Selectable tap readout, matching sensor performance to your application
